We received an order from a new customer today for a custom product. He had been paying nearly 10 times the price in the U.S. that we quoted him from China, packaging complete. Import costs such as U.S. customs duty and broker fees, will need to be added to this, but even so, the spread between the US cost and China price for this item, which was constructed of steel and plastic, are quite large.
Not all products have a spread this big, but the possibility is always there…
